              Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World
               

              Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Buffett, Howard G.; Contributions by Buffett, Howard W.; Foreword by Buffett, Warren E.; Read by Drummond, David

              If you had the resources to accomplish something great in the world, what would you do? Legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge to his son in 2006, when he announced he was leaving the bulk of his fortune to philanthropy. So, Howard G. Buffett set out to help the m...ost vulnerable people on Earth nearly a billion individuals who lack basic food security. And Howard has given himself a deadline: forty years to put more than $3 billion to work on this challenge. Each of us has about forty chances to accomplish our goals in life. Howard learned this lesson through his passion for farming: all farmers can expect to have about forty growing seasons, giving them just forty chances to improve on every harvest. This lesson applies to all of us, however, because we all have about forty productive years to do the best job we can, whatever our passions may be. Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World is a book that captures Howard s journey. We join him around the world as he seeks out new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. It is told in a unique format: forty stories that will provide readers a compelling look at Howard s lessons learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth.

              Meet Hola. She's a nightmare, but it's not her fault if she tackles strangers and chews on furniture, or if she runs after buses and fried chicken containers and drug dealers. No one ever told her not to. Worse yet, she scares her family. Hola may be the most beautiful Bernese mo...untain dog in the world, but she's never been trained--at least, not by anyone who knew what he was doing. Hola's supposed master, Marty, is a high-functioning alcoholic. A TV writer turned management consultant, Marty's in debt and out of shape; he's about to lose his job, and one day he emerges from a haze of peach-flavored vodka to find he's on the verge of losing his wife, Gloria, too, if he can't get his life--and his dog--under control. Desperately trying to save his marriage, Marty throws himself headlong into the world of competitive dog training. Unfortunately, he knows even less than Hola, the only dog ever to be expelled from her puppy preschool twice. Somehow, together, they need to get through the American Kennel Club's rigorous Canine Good Citizen test. Of course, Hola first needs to learn how to sit. It won't be easy. It certainly won't be pretty. But maybe, just maybe, there will be cheesecake.

              Inside the Box: A Proven System of Creativity for Breakthrough Results (Audio CD / Audio)

              The traditional attitude toward creativity in the American business world is to think outside the box to brainstorm without restraint in hopes of coming up with a breakthrough idea, often in moments of crisis. Sometimes it works, but it's a problem-specific solution that does not...hing to engender creative thinking more generally.Inside the Box demonstrates Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT), a method that systemizes creativity as part of the corporate culture. SIT requires thinking inside the box, working in one's familiar world to create new ideas independent of specific problems. Dozens of books discuss how to make creative thinking part of a corporate culture, but none takes the innovative and unconventional approach of Inside the Box. SIT's techniques and principles have instilled creative thinking into such companies as Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, and other industry leaders. Inside the Box shows how corporations have successfully used SIT in business settings as diverse as medicine, technology, new product development, and food packaging. With inside the box thinking, companies of any size can become sufficiently creative to solve problems even before they develop and to innovate on an ongoing basis.

              The Vice Capades: Sex, Drugs, and Bowling from the Pilgrims to the Present (Audio CD / Audio)

              From the illegality of bowling in colonial America to violent video games and synthetic drugs, Vice Capades by bestselling author Mark Stein examines the nation's relationship with the actions, attitudes, and antics that have defined morality. This comprehensive, yet humorous, hi...story reveals that our views of vice are not merely formed by morals but by power. By viewing a variety of vices across the span of American history, Vice Capades brings into focus the nation's inconsistent moral compass and helps us understand shifts in laws to combat vice by revealing who and what wields power (often invisibly) in the United States. While laws against such things as nude dancing have become less restrictive, restrictive laws have been enacted against sexual harassment. While marijuana is no longer illegal in numerous jurisdictions, restrictive laws have been enacted against cigarettes. Stein examines how this nation's inconsistent moral compass has consistently pointed to every era's powers-that-be and enables us to view shifts in the power structure taking place before the public became aware of particular laws against vice and who determines what is or is not deemed vice.

              The Triumph of Faith: Why the World Is More Religious Than Ever (Audio CD / Audio)

              Everybody seems to take it for granted that the world is getting more secular--that faith is doomed by modernity. Scientists, secularists, and atheists applaud the change; religious believers lament it. But here's the thing: they're all wrong, and acclaimed author Rodney Stark ha...s the numbers to prove it. The Triumph of Faith explodes the myth that people around the world are abandoning religion. In this lively, eye-opening book, Stark marshals an unprecedented body of data--surveys of more than a million people in 163 nations--to paint the full picture that both scholars and popular commentators have missed. He examines why this astonishing growth of religion is happening and what it means for our future.
